City Times Sound

With a professional radio station located in the heart of City College’s downtown San Diego campus, the students of the Radio, Television and Film program learn their craft in a state-of-the-art studio.

 

KSDS San Diego HD-2, now known to students as City Times Sound, is a student-run radio station located in the KSDS studios broadcasting on HD radio and online during the academic term. Students work directly with station staff and many serve as interns in programming, production and membership.
